Does your HS bruise as it heals? I have recently begun noticing pretty large, deep bruising around my HS sores that are in the healing stage. I am not causing the bruising by squeezing them or anything like that, just waking up covered in bruises.

      @spookyspoonie I’m sorry :/ I can ask my derm next time I go in. He doesn’t always know the answers but he’ll always take a stab at it. I’ll let you know what I find out!

      Mine bruise horribly. I'm not anaemic or diabetic, but they just bruise so bad.

      It may heal but the scare will always be there

      thanks! I wasn't diabetic or pre-diabetic in my bloodwork from 2 months ago so I don't think thats related to my healing at this time (although I do have other reasons for slow healing)

      Also check your diabetes status as well. Diabetes makes wounds or scars heal slower.

      I have discoloration (purple scars) after they heal but I used to bruise easily when I was anemic. You may be anemic so the extra inflammation is making even a small bump or knock cause a bruise. Their are also a few other conditions that lead to east bruising as well as medication side effects so I would talk to your doctor.

        @Soskae thanks for your response. I asked my dermatologist yesterday when I was getting my steroid injections. I showed her the bruises, which look nothing like my regular HS scars or my steroid-induced atrophy scars, and her response was basically "idk it might be normal".... which was very unhelpful
